Reduce Your Risk of Type 2 Diabetes with Coffee

A new study has revealed that drinking 3 to 4 cups of coffee per day decreases the drinkers’ risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 25%. This is in comparison to those who consume none to less than two cups each day.

Coffee lovers can start rejoicing because a new study has disclosed that people who consume moderate coffee regularly have 25% less chances of developing type 2 diabetes.

Coffee ConsumptionLower risk is seen in people who drink three to four cups of coffee per day, as compared to those who consume none to less than two cups each day.

“Drinking decaffeinated filtered coffee at lunch time is the best time of day to lower the chances of diabetes,” researchers noted.

“The evidence shows that drinking three to four cups of coffee per day is associated with an approximate 25 percent lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes compared to consuming none to less than two cups per day,” stated researchers from Switzerland-based Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee (ISIC).

The study has also suggested an inverse association, with each additional cup of coffee reducing the relative risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 7-8 per cent.

Research indicated that caffeine was unlikely to be responsible for this effect. A recent meta-analysis suggested that consumption of both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee is associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes affects more than 380 million people worldwide, with an economic burden of $548 billion, making it one of the most significant global health problems.
